Chicago sues actor Jussie Smollett for police costs

The city of Chicago filed a lawsuit on Thursday against Jussie Smollett seeking three times the damages it said it incurred in the investigation of a staged hate crime. Chicago officials previously said they would sue Smollett after he refused a demand by the city for $130,000 to cover police overtime costs to investigate the claims.

Let’s ignore the presumption of innocence, and the burden is on the city to prove Jussie is guilty. Let’s ignore all charges were dropped against Jussie. https://thegrapevine.theroot.com/it-aint-over-chicago-demands-jussie-smollett-pay-130k-1833812916 Here are 2 questions: 1) In the letter where the city tries to extort an additional $130,000 from Jussie, the city warned, “may prosecute you for making a false statement to the city.” Why did the city decide not to pursue this option when Jussie decided to take a stand and not allow himself to be shaken down again? https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-emanuel-smollett-costs-recovery-20190328-story.html 2) There was a Federal investigation into that deplorable letter that was sent to Jussie. Some tried to deny that some homophobic, racist, Trump supporting bigot was responsible and blamed Jussie for the letter. If this was also a hoax, why wasn’t Jussie charged at the federal level? https://pagesix.com/2019/03/26/jussie-smollet-could-still-face-federal-charges/ It seems to me that the answer to these 2 questions are simple and obvious: JUSSIE SMOLLETT IS AN INNOCENT MAN!
